is the new issue of the journal "MANAGEMENT". Its primary goal is to
present current research in the field of management both to domestic and foreign
public. The Journal deals with pressing problems, not only of general nature,
but especially with those occurring in the countries in transition. In fact, it
aims to cover functional issues, specific topics and general aspects of
management related to all kinds of organizations – manufacturing and
service companies, profit-making firms and non-profit organizations, private and
public, as well as large and small enterprises.
issues refer to the pressing problems of the four fundamental management
Identification of goals, choice of strategy, forecasting, elaboration of plans and budgets and decision making;
Design and selection of organizational structure, design of internal relations system, as well as design of management system;
Organizational behaviour, motivation, leadership, communication, groups and relations within the groups, interpersonal relations and conflicts;
Control methods, control areas, information systems in controlling.
topics will be related to the current problems in specific management areas and
the production activities, such as:
Finance, operations, marketing, sales, supplies, logistics, research and development, accounting, audit, human resources, costs, etc.;
Industry, trade, hotel industry, banks, non-economic and public enterprises, branches, associations, cities, regions, etc.
general management problems will be also included in the Journal. These problems
deal with the subject, goals and methods of the management science, theory of
management, as well as with the ethics and social responsibility of management
as a profession, etc. Special attention will be paid to the problems of
strategic management which represents a synthesis of functional and other
specific management fields.
The listed topics define a wide range of research in the field of management, involving a large number of scientists and experts, not only from faculties of economics, but also from many other institutions (which deal with technology, philosophy, political science, law, etc.).
would hereby invite all the colleagues interested in these topics to submit a
paper and hence contribute to the improvement and development of the Journal.
